Rated 5 out of 5Â by simplyfire More than expected
This little purse is way more than expected. It is packed with so many areas for storage, I would not call it 'mini' at all!!! Has nice adjustable strap for crossbody use or not. Quality, storage ability and price=buy it!

I'm about to purchase a second one because I'm afraid they will stop making this handbag. My regret is that I didn't buy the brown one while it was being made--the floral is too juvenile for me. Just wish it were made in other solid colors--amazing little handbag that carries as much as a large purse.
Rated 4 out of 5Â by ElLowe Not perfect, but the best I've found so far
I bought this purse in coral and am satisfied enough with it to order it in black. It holds my phone, lip balm, multiple keys, wallet, a couple pens, a small medicine container, and sometimes a folding hairbrush.
I like a smallish purse that I can easily reach into to grab my phone, so it's important that my phone fit in the front pocket under the flap, and the flap closes securely. This one is magnetic and has been good so far. The back zip area works well for keys. It's nice that there's an inside zipper in this section too.
I don't care for all the built-in card pockets. They're fairly shallow and not all that snug, so I wouldn't feel confident that the cards wouldn't spill out if I tipped it the wrong way when the pocket was open. I'd rather see a version with a single horizontal fabric divider to keep this area a little more organized. I use this section for a small flat wallet I carry.
Other positives: I do like that you can store items in the spaces between pockets--it's a great place for a couple tissues, bandages, receipts or scraps of paper. I absolutely love the adjustable strap which adjusts to any height woman, and lets you have the purse where you prefer to carry it. The faux leather is soft and over the past few months, has proved fairly sturdy, although I try to open the magnetic flap carefully, to prevent ripping it.
In the future, it would be nice for this sort of purse to be available in upscale finishes, similar to the Vera Wang bags. It would also be nice to come out with a more tailored, simple version, with squared corners and without the metal ornaments. It would be nice to have a flat, shallow zipper on the back side as a designated spot for spare change.
This is a wish list that comes from a frustrating search for just the right bag, but again, I'm very happy with this version compared to the alternatives. What's especially nice that I can tell when it gets too heavy that it's time to clean it out. It's small enough that it only takes a minute to scoop out any spare changed I've thrown in, and clear out extra receipts.

No more huge, slouchy, shoulder-aching bags for me! This is the very best mini bag I've found. Perfect number and size of pockets. Phone in the front, keys and cards next, lip gloss and sunglasses in the larger back zip pocket but room for more if you want. Cash & coins go in the small zippered pocket -- no need to carry a wallet. There's a slim pocket on the back for errant receipts and a hidden middle pocket for reading specs and a pen. Adjustable strap is wonderful -- thick enough not to dig into your shoulder. Started with cross-body length but using the shortest now. I've had mine for a year and find it suits every situation, now I have one in every color. This is all I need -- ever!
